Cannot access SBS 2008 shares over PPTP VPN
Posted on 2009-12-16
We have a client for whom we have installed and set up an SBS 2008 box.
Everything is working fine apart from VPN.
The server is configured to allow all domain users VPN access.
There are no NAPs configured.
The firewall is OFF on both the SBS server and the client.
The VPN DOES successfully connect.
I CAN ping the server VIA IP, FQDN and NETBIOS names with no problem.
I CANNOT browse any shares on the server
I CANNOT use Outlook without enabling RPC access, which works fine.
The client IS being assigned an IP on the correct remote subnet.
When trying to connect via either RUN... \\servername\share OR \\FQDN\share OR \\IP address\share OR via a mapped drive, I get "Cannot connect to server \\servername as the specified network name is no longer available."
I ping, and there it is. This is not a name resolution issue.
Windows XP users do NOT have this problem, only W7 users (bad advert M$)
